So to the painting, I post some pictures of how I paint my Swedish Infantrymen for the Finish War 1808-1809. My aim are as you might remember to paint them as Nyland Infantry Regiment in the uniform from 1802 drwn by the Swedish Officer Carl Gustaf Gillberg (1774-1855)
I use Vallejo Model Color range if nothing other is stated.
Black primer, I use GW or Vallejo
A quick bruch with the base uniform colour, Basalt Grey - 162. And the skin are painted with Flat Flesh - 18.
Collar, Lapells, Cuffs and Turnbacks was painted with Dark Blue - 53, The Shoulder straps are keept grey. The belts was painted with Buss - 120.
Hat, Gaitors and Ammo box was painted with German Grey Dark - 167. Hat plume was painted with Yellow Ochre - 121.
Rifle stock with Beige Brown - 135 and the Rifle Barrel and Bayonet with Natural Steel - 178. The Sling was painted with Cavalry Brown - 137.
All brass details like the Hat band, Belt buckle and Buttons was painted with Brass - 174.
All was covered by Army Painter Ink - Strong Tone.
Here the hawkeyed might notice that I added Cutlass and bayonet scabards, I actually forgot them at first...
I now highlighted al colours using the same colors as for the base. The beltscolours got a second high light using Ivory - 5. and the skin was high ligthed with Basic Skintone - 17.
Just the base left to do...
Have a nice weekend !!!
